Mass Scale Slaughter Of Cows And The Problem Of Rising Unemployment In India.

As a result of large scale slaughter of animals resulting in non-availability of dung, millions of Hindus and Muslims and people of other castes have lost their age-old profession. What we need to is the change in thought process that generates apathy towards the mother cows in so called modern society. Lets ponder upon some bare facts point wise-

  1. We know that the dung cake and the meat of the bullock both are commercial commodities. If one bullock is slaughtered, its meat i.e. slaughtering activity can sustain the butcher’s trade for only a day. For the next day’s trade another bullock has to be slaughtered. But if the bullock is not slaughtered, about 5 to 6 thousand dung cakes can be made out of its dung per year, and by the sale of such dung cake, one person can be sustained for a whole year. If a bullock survives even for 5 years after becoming otherwise useless, it can provide employment to a person for 5 years.
  2. If 70 bullocks are slaughtered every day then approximately 25,000 bullocks are finished in a year. Thus 25,000 poor women, whether Hindus or Muslims, surviving on sale of dung cakes, which would have been produced by these 25,000 bullocks, are deprived of their source of livelihood which can sustain them for years.
  3. The entire Harijan community has become jobless as a result of the policy of animal slaughter and export of leather. This is so because the free availability of corpses of naturally deceased animals to them is now stopped. Now the living animals are slaughtered in the slaughter houses and the better quality of skin or leather is purchased by Corporate giants for manufacture of leather-ware or for export, whereas inferior quality of leather has to be purchased by the Harijan cobbler, after paying a price for it.
  4. A builder in Bombay cannot build houses with mortar, i.e. mixture of cattle dung, clay and horse dung. Our masons in the city also cannot build such a house. Only the potters in the villages can build such a house. The potters used to build houses in villages using such mixture, and they also used to make roof tiles out of clay for such houses. In the present times, when houses are not made of dung and clay, there is no use for the roof tiles also, and thus the potter has lost his profession. With growing scarcity of dung, houses are no longer made of mixture of dung and clay and as a result, the vocation of making roof tiles connected with this system of housing has also started vanishing. The animal dung is the basic material to build houses in villages. If only potter families are engaged in construction of houses in villages, it will need 55 lakh potter families to build 3 crore houses. A similar number of potter families will be needed to make roof tiles, required in billions for covering such 12houses.

The above situations are just a few examples of how the Indian economy and its vast population has been adversely affected as a result of abandoning what is sarcastically described as “Dung Economy”. In reality, the government machinery controlled by bureaucrats educated by western perspectives, working under the diktat of their foreign masters, have deprived the people of this country of their age-old professions by resorting to indiscriminate animal slaughter, and have thus pushed crores of Hindus and Muslims in the dungeon of unemployment and poverty.

People themselves will have to rise to expose the government and its useless schemes to the real situation so that the independent profession of crores of Hindu and Muslim brothers is restored.
